Recognizing the Fastest Growing Companies in Northeast Ohio
Established in 1988, The Weatherhead 100 awards are the premier celebration of Northeast Ohio’s spirit of entrepreneurship and the companies leading the way in the region. Each year, we recognize this elite group of companies who serve as the best examples of leadership, growth and success in our region.
Companies that make the list are recognized for their percent of revenue growth over the past five years. Qualifying companies can enter in one of the following categories:
- Weatherhead 100 Enterprise: (Category formerly known as Upstarts) Fast-growing companies with 15 or fewer employees or net sales of less than $5 million last year.
- Weatherhead 100 Winners: Celebrated for big growth in net sales over the past five years - from at least $100K to $1 million.
- Weatherhead 100 Titan: (Category formerly known as Centurions) Fast-growing companies with at least $100 million net sales last year that help drive the region.
- Weatherhead 100 Emergent Businesses to Watch: (New category for 2023!) Companies in business for two to four years with an increase in sales.
The 35th Annual Weatherhead 100 Awards Ceremony will be held at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 14, 2023, at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.
Thank you to the more than 130 companies and individuals who were able to join us on Dec. 8, 2022, at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown, for the 34th Annual Weatherhead 100 Awards Ceremony, which was hosted by Sia Nyorkor, an Emmy award-winning journalist from Cleveland 19 News. The ceremony was a rewarding and memorable event that puts Northeast Ohio's best companies center stage.
